To determine:
Graph of $y=\sqrt{x-2}-1$ by applying appropriate transformation.
Firstly, we will draw graph of $y=\sqrt{x}$ which is given by:Y1
now, we will draw graph of $y=\sqrt{x-2}$ by shifting the graph of $y=\sqrt{x}$ two units towards right.
So, the graph of $y=\sqrt{x-2}$ is as follows:Y2
Now, we will draw graph of $y=\sqrt{x-2}-1$ by shifting the graph of $y=\sqrt{x-2}$ one unit downward along y axis.
The graph of $y=\sqrt{x-2}-1$ is given by:Y3
